The People's Choice Award nominations for 2013 have been revealed, and oddly enough, the People's Choices have very little in common with actual ratings.

Glee, which has continued to decline in the eyes of critics and viewers, is at the top of the TV list with five nominations. The Vampire Diaries also has five nominations, which is equally surprising considering how few people actually watch the CW. More and more these awards aren't about the people, they're about the online people who create buzz and pandemonium for their shows.

How else to explain Gossip Girl and Grimm being nominated for Favorite TV Drama? Or Supernatural scoring four nominations? Heck, the category for Favorite Dramatic TV Actor features two guys from Supernatural against two guys from The Vampire Diaries and Nathan Fillion from Castle.

Another interesting takeaway? In the Favorite Comedic TV Actor category, four of the five nominees are openly gay. That's a rather impressive bit of tolerance.

On the movie side, recently named Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum has four individual nominations for Favorite Actor, Favorite Comedic Actor (21 Jump Street) and Favorite Dramatic Actor (The Vow and Magic Mike). All three of those movies are also nominated.

Speaking of Favorite Drama Movie, it might be my favorite category. You have sappy romantic films (The Lucky One, The Vow), an edgy teen dramedy (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), a critical darling (Argo) and Magic Mike. Seriously where else must you decide between a hostage rescue and male strippers?

In music, Justin Bieber leads everyone with five nominations. interestingly enough, in the new category of Favorite Music Fan Following, Justin is competing against his recent ex, Selena Gomez. Will this category become a battle to decide who wins the break-up?
